. it is a different tlesh hold than what the obama administration has laid out when you look carefully at what the president said at the general assembly, the most recent remarks on iran's nuclear program, he said the united states will not allow iran to have a nuclear bomb. i am paraphrasing to a certain degree. the word capability was not there. you did hear it from the israeli prime minister and today you're hearing it once again from mitt romney. mitt romney has been vague. he has gone back and forth on the issue of capability and sometimes he says it and sometimes he doesn't. today he is very cat goral in saying in a romney administration iran would not be able to have that capability of building a nuclear bomb which is significantly different than the threshold laid out by the president. >> and let's talk about syria which has been somewhat of a thorn in the side of this current sitting american president, and mr. romney, governor romney's view of syria, there was something in these prepared remarks that we excerpted that stood out to me and i want to get your take on it. he said or he w

to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t
. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> reporter: romney campaign put together a conference call to draw attention, more focus to the comments by the vice president. the obama campaign pushed back saying this was just another act of desperation and what the vice president was talking about were -- were situations or a climate that was put in place by the failed policies of the former administration. i'll tell you what, at the very next event during his remarkings, the vice president did touch on the same subject but left out the word buried. soledad? >> walk us through the logistics of tonight. how's it going to run? >> reporter: right. well, first of all, it will focus on the domestic policies, focus on the economy, on health care, on the role of government. it will be a 90-minute debate. six segments of 15 minutes each. one main question per segment and two minutes to answer the question. the rest of the time will be for discussions. that's where we can expect some fireworks, perhaps. and in the audience will be vips, people whose campaigns have invit
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe

no mistake -- >> president obama at the rose garden. now, david axelrod and others in the administration are now saying that he was quick to label the benghazi killings an act of terror based on his wording there. keeping them honest, that was both the first and last time that he used that word in relation to this. even days later, no one in the administration even came close to that language. listen. >> it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. at will tell us with certainty what transpired but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the u.n. ambassador susan rice. two sundays ago, took another three days before the administration began acknowledging what many experts say should have been obvious. >> let me begi
with you on the terror front and the obama administration. do you buy david axelrod saying that president obama labeled it terror the next day? >> well, it didn't sound from that context as if he labeled it as terrorism the next day, anderson. but it does seem credible to me that the white house is sharing with the public what it knows when it knows. it's very difficult to get good information immediately and as this issue becomes clearer, i think the white house has made a credible effort to tell the americans what it, in fact, knows about it. >> ari fleischer, what about that? david axelrod is also saying look, an investigation, you have to be prudent, you're president of the united states, you can't jump to conclusions. >> i have a fair amount of sympathy. i stood on that podium at the white house in the case of attacks on our country. you have to wait until you have all the facts to speak. but in this case, i think there was a willful pattern in this administration of downplaying terrorist attacks against our country. it was done with the underwear bomber on the airplane. it was done
's wrong with the entire obama administration, they have a lack of ambition for this country and what it can and should do. but i would also say if he believes that, that tim geithner believes that a public sector job is equivalent to a private sector job. it's not that public sector jobs aren't important. teachers are important, firemen are important, nurses are important. but a public sector job doesn't pay for itself. taxpayers pay for it. a public sector job doesn't create other jobs. a private sector job pays for itself and creates other jobs. i frankly found his statement shocking. both because of its lack of ambition and because of its misunderstanding of what actually drives growth. it's not public sector jobs. >> let me ask you this, under reagan's recovery, were we laying off teachers and firefighters? were state governments laying off teachers and firefighters at this rate? >> no. absolutely not. >> well, that's part of the recovery. our unemployment is where we are right now if republican governors weren't slashing teach eshs and slashing first responders. >> that's a circ
for the middle class. obviously the obama administration takes issue with it and says it isn't true. do you think this could be enough, if mitt romney could make the case for him to win the election? >> i think it's a very important point. remember why he wants to have the tax reform he wants. it's to make sure that the united states grows better than we've seen in the past four years. and what mr. romney is trying to say is, look, we have all these people out of work. we have all these people with jobs whose incomes are not growing. let's lower rates, broaden the base, be respectful of the middle class and the deficit by but have a better tax policy in place. it's good positions for him. the president can't even get the first step right. instead of lowering rates and broadening the base, he is insisting on raising taxes. that's a bit of a tough sell right now. it was the same president who, in 2010, said we can't afford to raise taxes on anyone. the economy is too weak. we're growing faster then than we are now. >> how big an issue could it be for democrats if mitt romney successfully makes the
that point in the press release. they did the math, okay? and here's the math that the obama administration has done. they found a way to make up $4 trillion of their $5 trillion number, and they conclude, there's a missing $1 trillion. not $5 trillion. $1 trillion. all right. so they've got the math all laid out here. i'm looking at the e-mail myself. if we take those numbers at f e facel value, it still doesn't match their rhetoric on the campaign trail this week. in fact, here's the president and his campaign's press secretary, both today. >> the centerpiece of governor romney's economic plan is a new $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthiest americans. >> the fact is that mitt romney's got $5 trillion tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires that he would make seniors and the middle class pay for. >> well, the voice you just heard there, ben le bolt. "outfront" tonight, you're going to talk to ben. he is obama's campaign press secretary. ben, good to talk to you. this $5 trillion number. obviously, you've gone through the math, as your campaign gets it in terms of how you get to
-muslim video in other parts of the world. various officials in the obama administration initially said a protest outside the consulate had turned violent. tonight, though, on the eve of a congressional hearing about the security situation in benghazi, prior to the attack, a new narrative is emerging from the state department. jill dougherty joins me now. so jill, there is a question about whether there were protests outside the consulate. the state department is now saying tonight there was nothing out of the ordinary, that all was quiet before the attack took place. there was no protest. that contradicts what we've heard from other corners of the administration, even days after the attack. how can that be? >> well, anderson, you know, they did not specifically say there were no protests. i just checked what one of those officials said, and he said you would have to ask others about that, but that is not our conclusion. and then this official also said i'm not saying we even have a conclusion. so that's still very, very unclear. but what this official does say tonight, anderson, is tha
't know how realistic that is after a financial crisis. and the obama administration thinks, look, we're going to stay the course. things are getting gradually better. so let's not panic. >> well, i think that, you know, what's clear about the 7.8%, to state the obvious, it's a big number in the context, just 30 some days out of the general election. >> and the lowest number since president obama took office in 2009. >> they were praying for a number lower -- that didn't begin with an eight and they got it. this is a huge, huge -- >> to be fair, the romney folks are also going to come back and say still this recovery is more lethargic than they should have been. >> it's all true. it's all true. can i tell you however you spin it -- >> you have to start that statement with still, then you've lost. what he needed coming out of that debate performance was momentum. you needed this number to be consistent with the message that you were delivering. >> he did not get momentum out of the debate performance. >> you are not going to get it from this number. this number -- part of mitt romney's
optimistic about where we're going. and another very important point for the obama administration. >> so, john, maria is right in part because it has taken away an important talking point from the romney campaign. he can no longer say the president promised to get the unemployment rate under 8%, now at 7.8%. we have one more jobs report to go so who knows. what can mitt romney do to -- for lack of a better term, spin the numbers. >> well, i think people see this and say is that really the best we can do. i think everybody is happy when we see any movement. but, let's face it, unemployment is right under 8%. we aren't seeing -- i believe 500,000 jobs in this report were part time workers. people want jobs and they want even more than jobs they want careers and they want hope. right now they don't see that. they see a president is doing nothing about jobs going overseas, they see a president who adds a small business tax at the time they can least afford it, they see college graduates, half of them coming out and can't find the jobs they want based upon the degrees that they have. and so i
the obama administration over their approach to syria. he was clear he would be sure that syrian rebels got the weapons they need, the heavy weaponry they so desperately need to take on the gun ships an tanks causing civilian casualties. he portrayed the struggle as more about checking iran's influence in that region, but he also pointed out one of the major contradictions the white house is currently facing, the violence extremists are flowing in, but the need to vet the kind of assistance it would go to. >> most libyans have not been following the presidential campaign. the attention has been on the country's own political situation. on sunday, the national assembly voted out the prime minister it had selected less than a month ago go. libya is now facing a political vacuum at a time of serious threats an instability. but one line from mitt romney's speech that would stand out to libyans, he said he would vigorously pursue those responsible for the september 11th attackn the u.s. consulate in benghazi. libyan officials here have praised the obama's administration response to the attack an
. remember, this is the end of the bush administration, early obama administration, the economy was bleeding jobs. 800,000 jobs a month at one point. spurt a growth, back down again. this is what the president says, no, it's not as robust as i would like, but look at this. look at this. since 2010 the economy has been adding jobs including 114,000 in september. that's what the president would say. governor romney says that's not enough. and with less regulation, lower taxes, other pro-business incentives you could create more. last month, health care jobs up, transportation jobs up. this one, wolf, in a report largely encouraging for the president, this is a bit discouraging, manufacturing jobs are down. if you look at the history of manufacturing in the obama presidency, again, you have the huge drop early on and a bit of a recovery since. but manufacturing jobs are still down from the beginning of the obama presidency. let me walk back over to this map for a second. that does matter in places like, the battleground states as well as anyone, ohio's a battleground, iowa's a battleground, in
in a second obama administration. he is very much looking forward to this. >> you have been pressing the romney campaign for specifics, today we got one specifics suggesting maybe there would be a cap on deductio at $17,000 for mortgage interest deductions, charitable contributions, that's a pretty specific number, what do you think about that? >> i think that the net result is still the same. that is specific, but he has not told us how he will do that without raising taxes on the middle class. even if you're capping deductions, separating them into different buckets with different caps on them. you're still raising taxes on the middle class. even his own economists that he relies on says you can't cut taxes by $5 trillion out paying for it by cutting deductions for people making $200,000 and less. that's just a fact. you can't do it. even if you close every single deduction for people making over $200,000, or $250,000 for families, you're still a trillion short. so he has to tell us how he will do this without increasing taxes on the middle class. so far the math does not add up. >
the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has started to pull it out by its boot straps. and so the obama campaign just in case we didn't get that has a statement that says that the romney campaign is taking this entirely out of context. it's obviously in looking at the full transcript that joe biden was talking about the fact that the middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this is coming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is a headache they don't need. as you know in the past joe biden has given them a bunch of headaches. they li
because this is a good thing for the obama administration. jack welch bei one of those. >> what i would say to those that say that we're cooking the books, first of all, it insults the integrity of the labor department, but secondly, it also means that they're not looking closely enough at the numbers, and typically what happens is that analysts put too much emphasis on the jobs report number. that number by virtue of the way it's collected from some 130,000 establishments and it's done through some by fax machine and others, that number is always going to be very variable. it's much like the adp number that we get earlier than even that number, so it's adjusted up and down every month, and so some months it will be down and adjusted upward, and other months it will be up and adjusted downward. >> it's a balance. >> yes. that's going to happen. but what's interesting is that -- >> tell us real quick what's interesting. >> last month it was adjusted upward, and we would expect it to happen this month. >> it's good news all around. thank you, danny. >> here's what we're working on for thi
years under the obama administration. so, before we chat, mr. stein, i do need to play this follow-up clip, the vice president, you know, coming back and explaining his comment. this was later in asheville. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and that ryan supported. as bill clinton, all they're suggesting now when asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. that's what this is. >> on the flip side, ben, you have the mitt romney secretly taped comments, the 47%, what does he do? what does he need to do to overcome this perception, he's this rich guy out to help the rich? >> first of all, we had lots of very rich presidents who have been helpful. fdr was one of the richest men in the country. his family ate off gold plates. john f. kennedy was one of the very richest people in america. he was a very fine president. the fact that lbj was fantastically rich, a fine president. the fact that they're rich doesn't mean they're bad presidents. not in the slightest. i think mr. romney ha
a broken promise of the obama administration. that governor romney can fix. and if people in a few of the border states and areas but it doesn't have the intensity like jobs and the economy, gas prices do right now. i think that's mostly what this debate will be about tomorrow night. i think it's the right message for governor romney and i think this gets him as close as that gap in the swing states and makes it a new ball game. >> mostly if you think mostly on the economy that would be really interesting because they have been real tight in the polls on the economy governor bob mcdonnell from virginia, thank you so much, sir. >> okay. >> you can watch the first presidential debate tomorrow night right here on cnn, also on, live coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern. >> let's take a look now at the rest of the mornings headlines. a video posted on youtube appears to show american freelance journalist austin tice who has been missing in syria since mid august. a video posted by supporters of the assad regime. the man is blindfolded and clearly in distress. he's being shofred
of relief. not just in the obama administration but many who said, look, the deadline is next spring, next summer. there isn't going to be a possible israeli military strike before the election. but iran is doubling down. just today prime minister ahmadinejad back in tehran gave a press conference. and he said this, brooke, i'll quote him "we are not people to retreat on the nuclear issue. if somebody thinks they can pressure iran, they are certainly wrong and must correct their behavior." at least in terms of words, which actions are more important than words, but in terms of words not backing down at all. from is going to be the crucial question for the next president whether it's barack obama or mitt romney. >> absolutely. erin burnett, thank you very much. >> good to see you, brooke. >> good to see you. see you tonight
by the the obama administration. >>> imagine being 23 miles above the ground and then jumping. that's exactly what one extreme skydiver plans to do today at 120,000 feet, 82 1/2 empire state buildings stacked on top of one another. problem now is the weather a. strong winds are delaying the event. you're looking at a live picture from the launch site in new mexico. if everything goes to plan, baumgartner will begin the first person to break the sound bear aier witho a -- barrier without the aid of a vehicle. back in april i got a chance to ask him about that special suit he will wear for this moment. >> if you want to go up to an altitude of 120,000 feet you need to have a pressurized suit. reason why, if you cross the line, about 60,000 feet high, water in your blood starts boiling and the pressure suit keeps the pressure with you and it's not going to happen to you. but also at the same time it's very limiting. you have a lack of movement. it's hard to exit the capsule in the suit. that will require a lot of practicing. that's what i did in the past. >> we hope it worked. joining us live from ro

have been criticizg how the obama administration has handled this. >> well, that's, of course, with democrats that are saying that over here at the state department you are never going to get them to say that, suzanne. it's simply not what they would do. if there were problems or there wasn't enough protection, they want to take that as a lesson for other places in the world where diplomats are working. right now what they're saying is they're collecting all of the documents and all of the information that they have to and they will make them available. >> do we expect that the secretary is actually going to testify before this committee? is there actually precedence for this? >> you know, i asked that yesterday, in fact, and they said she was not asked in that letter to testify, but there will be herself -- the state department official says there will be testifying. dwoent know precisely at this point who they are. don't forget there are, like, three investigations. you have the fbi investigating. you have the state department's own accountability review board. there's quite
